For starters, this houseplant rarely needs deep watering. However, excessive watering can be harmful to health. So be sure to take a 7-10 day break between each watering session. Direct sunlight and low lighting will help with growth, so make sure you set up your money plant in a bright but shady spot, indoors or outdoors. It also prefers moisture, so make sure the leaves are sprayed in winter.

Make sure you water them deeply and wait until the soil has dried up significantly before watering again. If brown spots appear on the leaves or they start to shrink, it is a sign that the plant needs more water. Lots of sunlight will cause the stem to grow thick and the tips of the leaves to turn red, adding beauty to the plant. Sunny, south-facing windows are ideal for ensuring that the jade plant has good daily sunlight.

Aloe plants are 95% water, so make sure you bring them indoors in the summer to avoid frost. They grow best in dry conditions; therefore, using a soil mix with construction sand will help with growth. Place the plant in a sunny spot and soak the soil thoroughly when watering. Remember to pour deep, but rarely. This corresponds to watering once a week in summer and once a month in winter.
